Suede shoes are great, and one of my favorite times to wear them is during the transition from summer to fall. I just ordered a pair of Rancourt & Co. burgundy suede beefroll penny loafers from Club Monaco’s recent extra 40% sale and am looking forward to incorporating them into my footwear rotation in the next couple of months. I’ll be sure to post some pics of those when they arrive next week.

Shown above L to R and top to bottom are suede ‘Connor’ longwings by John Doe, Allen Edmonds (AE) ‘Amok’ chukkas, AE ‘Mojave’ crepe-soled chukkas, AE for RL snuff suede penny loafers, and Velasca’s ‘L’Innamoraa’ suede double monks (review to come).

I thrifted this Polo Ralph Lauren by Corneliani jacket last week for $15. It’s made of a silk, flax, and wool blend. I like it. A lot.
